Although internet search engines will return thousands (and sometimes millions!) of results, it can often be difficult, as "Just What is Electricity?" (i) Electricity: invented or discovered? makes clear, to locate reliable sources of information.

Below is a list of those websites, organised thematically.


Finding Articles in Primary Source Journals, Periodicals, and Newspapers

Finding Definitions of Words or Ideas

Online Copies of Books

Finding Books within UK Institutions

Finding Current Articles

Other titles relevant to the themes explored in these tutorials
